Great place to help people at a fast pace, emphasis on up sells
Bank Teller (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – October 3, 2017
Beginning of day involved prepping teller stations, loading machines: Money order, teller checks, credit/bank card machine tape, & verify vault balance after handing out appropriate cash to tellers. Cash handling was always dual controlled by a manager type & a teller.
We had contests designed to help us working towards the goal of up selling banking tools (e-statements, debit cards, etc) and cross selling (loans, mortgages, insurance, etc). They made fun working towards your goals.
work culture Depends upon the management & the staff make up of the branch. If you are a team player it is easy. If you enjoy meeting people & helping them it's wonderful. Stress to reach sales goal was always present.
Hardest part was helping a regular member who know all the benefits & products the Credit Union has & needing to try & up sell.
The most enjoyable part was helping people and enjoying who they are.
good place to begin a career and work your way up into management
Rush hour & pressure to up sell
